How Eating Eggs Helps With Hair Growth

Eating eggs can help with hair growth

Many women often take hair, skin, and nail vitamins to help their hair grow faster. I tell my clients all the time that in my professional opinion, taking those vitamins will not hurt your hair but you will more than likely not see a drastic difference in your hair's growth either. Actually eating the food with the vitamin in it is better anyway because your body absorbs more of the nutrients that way. There are so many superfoods that contain lots of vitamins and nutrients that would benefit the hair and today I'm going to share one with you: eggs.

Eggs can aid in hair growth and hair health

Yes, eggs are a great source of biotin, protein, folate, vitamin A, E, & D. Let's take a closer look at the roles these vitamins and nutrients play in healthy hair care.

Biotin- Encourages hair growth, aids in hair loss, is often used to treat alopecia, and deficiencies in biotin can lead to hair thinning and hair loss.
Protein- Protein is the building block of the hair, and the hair follicles are made up of a protein (keratin). Lack of protein leads to hair loss.
Folate: A lack of folate can lead to slower growth and hair loss.
Vitamin A: All cells, including the hair needs vitamin A to grow. Not getting enough Vitamin A is linked to hair loss, and too much vitamin A leads to hair loss as well!
Vitamin E: Increases hair growth, can lead to hair loss when not getting enough.
Vitamin D: Having low levels or a deficiency in vitamin D is linked to alopecia. Also it is said that vitamin D can create new hair follicles. New hair follicles equals more hair!

Diet plays a large part in hair health

I personally eat eggs just about every day for breakfast. I am also known for eating a fried egg on my turkey burger (or the rare occasion that I may have a beef burger). I eat them scrambled, fried, boiled, poached, and I just love omelets, quiche, and frittatas! If you don't like eggs you can also sneak them in your food by baking them into your foods so that you don't have to taste them but you still get all of the benefits.
